You may have come across the term 'jean suit' or a 'denim suit' while looking for bespoke suits. But are jean suits like jean jackets, a form of informal streetwear?
Decidedly not. If you've never heard of denim or jean suits, here is everything you need to know about them, from what they are, when you wear them, why you wear them, and where you can get a bespoke jean suit.
What is a Denim Suit?
A jean suit is like any other bespoke suit. There is only one major difference: the suit is made from denim fabric.
Since jeans, a casual form of leg wear, are for the most part made from denim, you then might think that a jean suit would be an informal outfit. But that isn't necessarily true.

Why Should You Wear a Jean Suit?
So... why would you wear a denim suit?
Okay, so now you know that suits can be made from denim. But why would you wear a custom jean suit?
One of the reasons jeans are so popular is because denim fabric is lighter than other fabrics you can get in pants. Denim is also a flexible fabric that many people find comfortable to wear.

Now imagine having all those properties in a made to measure suit. Jean and denim suits are like a more casual bespoke suit that is light, comfortable, and professional.
When do You Wear a Jean Suit?
While not as formal as usual bespoke suits, jean and denim suits still look as sharp as a bespoke suit while also being as comfortable.
Jean suits offer the best of casual and formal wear
Jean suit's are an ideal choice of wear for parties, especially semiformal, business related parties. Custom denim suits present an interesting blend of laid back casualness and professional presentation that few other outfits can match.
